With more of the opponent's attention focused on the defensive player of the year, LaMarr Woodley put up four sacks in two playoff games. Add that to the two he had in the game against Jacksonville last postseason and Woodley has six sacks in three playoff games. Not bad for the young guy.
I fault Santonio around here quite a bit for his proclivity for bonehead, absent-minded play. One-game suspension notwithstanding, the guy was a bit of a letdown in a regular season in which he was supposed to propel into the upper echelon of receivers in the league. But the guy made the big plays in the playoffs, keeping the Steelers in the game in the first half against San Diego and coming up with a punt-return-esque dash to the endzone on his touchdown reception yesterday. The guy is finally starting to live up to his potential and doing it at the right time. Nice when that happens.
